BYOFF 2013

BYOFF (Bring Your Own Film Festival) 2013

The BYOFF has provided a platform to first-timers and budding film-makers, who did not get a chance to showcase their films in big festivals. The festival concluded today.

Till Saturday morning, 70-odd films had been shown and the festival was expected to screen at least 120 films before it called curtains. Among these, 10 films were in Odia, 20 in Bengali and rest in Hindi and English.

The screenings begin at sunset and go on till 2 am.

On the completion of 10 years, one of the founding members of the festival, director Sushant Misra, said: “It is a ferociously independent festival. We face financial crunch but every year we manage it easily, somehow. Over the last 10 years, 5000 filmmakers have participated in the festival.”

BYOFF does not have any bar on any kind of film. “I know people who make films just to screen it at BYOFF. We do not want to fill seats but want creative people to come and exchange ideas,” said Singh, who was recently seen playing a cameo in Special 26.
